Catch em off guard. Repel the attack. You know the boardroom needs someone with some stones. That’s where the Defender comes in. The Defender is equal parts Seal Team 6 and preppy look. Bad ass meets ‘Pardon me sir’. DEFY is hand-crafting this series out of Leeds England's very own Charles F. Stead's renowned 'Waxy Commander' Snuff Leather. The bag takes an entire side of Snuff leather just to create 1 Defender. The entire length of the bag is finished by our master leather workers with hand-skived leather to give it a truly smart and highly rugged, finished look. The Charles F. Stead Tannery has been in existence for over a century, much like the Horween Leather Tannery.
Waxy Commander is a rugged heritage looking leather, with a character all of its own. It has a worn looking patina that looks as though it already has a rich history. It's fully waterproof and is often used for high-end boots and bags. This soft yet rugged leather is impregnated with a patented blend of unique waxes that make it feel like no other leather we've ever felt before. The tight fibre structure prevents any ‘opening’ or stretching of the leather, and the Waxy Commander's traditional, rich dyeings work with the waxes during wear, to produce a wonderful combination of natural texture and colour. This is a TREMENDOUSLY difficult leather to buy in the U.S. so we feel quite fortunate we were able to get our hands on some.
We've integrated $60 worth of 1” AustriAlpin™ COBRA® Quick Release buckles for good measure on this Limited Edition Defender. These are the same buckles used by Special Forces in theater today.
Your computer will sleep soundly ensconced in closed-cell foam technology sourced from an industry leading foam-technology company. The inside is lined with water-resistant black Cordura material and even more Waxy Commander accents and trim, with distressed snaps that keep your computer snug and safe.
Now look at the removable strap as the attention to detail doesn’t stop there: durable 4000 lb Mil spec webbing with military grade metal hardware, more Waxy Commander Leather details + metal clips let em know you mean business. A large pocket with a U.S. sourced YKK Oversized Distressed Brass Zipper on the back keeps things tight and easy to access and is great for on the go storage.
